Caramelised Scallion (Spring Onions) Noodles

Caramelised Scallion (Spring Onion) Noodles a3

Here are what I love about this scallion noodles:

One, it is an easy sauce to make. Only 4 ingredients required to make the sauce: cooking oil, scallions, soy sauce and sugar. Yes, these are all you need. Almost too easy.

Two, I have finally found a way to use up all my scallions. I can’t seem to able to use up scallions whenever I buy them from the supermarket.  They make nice garnish and taste great as the base flavour of stir fry, coupled with sliced ginger, but I only use a small quantity at a time. After a couple of dishes or two, they seem to always be pushed to the bottom of my crisper and eventually withered. Does this sound familiar?

Three, if you are  a noodles lover like me, it makes a perfect standby meal if you are too busy to think about making lunch or dinner. If you think you will be having a busy week ahead, make the sauce over the weekend and store it in the fridge.  All you have to do is to heat up the quantity you need in the microwave for a second of two, cook the noodles of your choice, toss it with the sauce and topped with fried egg, sauteed mushrooms, vegetables or grilled chicken.

In addition, there are not many popular Shanghai street foods that can be replicated easily at home with accessible ingredients. I’m delighted that this scallion noodles is one of them. :)

    Ha I agree it always seems to take forever to use up a bunch of scallions. I find that if you wrap it lightly in newspaper before placing it in a plastic bag, it does last longer!

    If you chop them up and put them in an airtight container, scallions freeze very well.
